Emergency Contacts: Where can I find important telephone numbers in case of emergencies?
If you are staying at Wittenborg’s accommodation, the student housing information booklet placed inside your room and in the common area also contains emergency numbers in case of urgent needs. This information can be found in the first page and contains numbers of Wittenborg Housing Department, Police, Fire Brigade and Hospital.
Note: Only call 112 when there is an urgent matter that cannot wait. Calling 112 unnecessarily is a crime in the Netherlands, and you may be fined for wasting the time of the emergency services. The person who answers your call will ask your name, location of the emergency and what kind of emergency is taking place. If they deem it necessary, they will send the relevant emergency services.
In case of non-emergency health problems, you can call the office of the doctor you are registered at. They will tell you what to do from then. If you are not registered with a doctor, make sure to ask the Front Desk to organise that for you at email@example.com. If someone has a major health issue out of office hours or is not registered with a doctor, they can call the Huisartsenpost in Apeldoorn Huisartsenpost in Amsterdam. They will give you instructions on what to do next.
Note: Do not go to the emergency room/hospital without calling the Huisartsenpost first. This will not be covered by the insurance and it will take a lot of time before they can help.
Note: You can call the non-emergency Fire Brigade number for things like fallen trees, cats stuck in trees for longer than 48 hours or other non-life threatening occurrences which require the Fire Brigade to visit the scene. In the event of all fires, no matter how small, always call 112.

And if inefficiencies of grading are found, corrective measures will be taken. This process is put in place to ensure that the students are not disadvantaged.

Food in the Netherlands: Can I buy the food that I am used to while staying in the Netherlands?
While certain, less-well known products may be difficult to find, the Netherlands does have international grocery stores in most cities, where you can find a variety of products from all over the world. Mainstream Dutch supermarkets like Albert Heijn, Boni, Hoojvliet, Jumbo or Coop often have "international" sections with foods from various cultures, while "Tokos" usually sell exclusively international products.
Additionally, nearly every city has Turkish or Arab supermarkets, street markets and butchers like Özbaktat in Apeldoorn.
It is also easy to find products from any culture online by Googling keywords like "[Culture/Country]+winkel" ("winkel" means "store" in Dutch). If you cannot find what you need in a physical store, there are tons of online shops which can provide what you need!

GA/FP: Can I do a Business Plan for a Graduation Assignment?
Yes, you can. But it is advised only to choose this option if you have specific plans to start the company you want to write the Business Plan for. This is because writing a Business Plan is the most challenging option and it requires a lot of reading and research with such an in-depth engagement in finance that it is only worthwhile to go the extra mile when you actually need that information for your future plan.

GA/FP: Can I request a change or extension in the submission of my Graduation Assignment?
The deadlines are clearly stated in the EEG in tabulated form and on the online area, so that students can plan and meet the exact deadlines looking backwards from the expected block of graduation. However, if you feel you are not able to submit your final GA or any of the parts of the GA at the specific date, you need to discuss with your Academic Supervisor in advance.
Question:(Last edited: Monday, 28 June 2021, 10:19 AM)
GA/FP: Can I upgrade one of my module results in the same block as my graduation block?
As per the rules, the student should have completed 220 European Credits (ECs) to submit and defend the Graduation Assignment/Final Project (GA/FP). These ECs including the obtained grades are locked in order to allow him/her to proceed with the GA/FP submission. We do not expect any changes in these grades at the time of defence or afterwards. A student could even fail a module in a worst-case scenario attempting to upgrade his/her mark. We cannot work with any uncertainties/probabilities, though in the case of failure in a reattempt a previous pass grade will remain intact.
We are happy to facilitate such upgrade attempts, but they must be completed before the GA/FP final submission as per the rules. The student cannot proceed with a GA/FP defence in the case of any pending results. Therefore, it is the student’s choice and decision to proceed with the GA/FP defence without upgrades or wait for the upgrades before proceeding with the defence. Please note the extra tuition and fees it may cost if your graduation gets delayed.
